two decades ago, washington had just completed its first century. i sat and listened as former governor booth gardner presented us with a challenge heading into washington's second century. he said "either we respond to international competition, or we doom ourselves and our children to a dramatic slide to second- rate status in the world." we chose to answer this challenge, with a unique formula for international success that has made us who we are today, with businesses, entrepreneurs, state government, all working together. now it's 24 years later. i have a new job, a new vantage point, and the world looks much different. a once vibrant and growing state economy was brought low by the gross irresponsibility by those on wall street. as a result we have suffered 4 years of recession, with almost 300,000 people in washington looking for work. too many of our families are on the brink of losing their home. parents lie awake at night wondering how they can provide for their children's future. but we remain an optimistic state, a visionary state and an innovative state. time has n

, our position in wisconsin is a stark contrast to the chaos in washington, dc. while many of our nation's leaders fail to make tough decisions, we decided to avoid failure by embracing true reform. still, there is much work to be done. as i travel the state, it is clear to me why our focus on helping create 250,000 jobs by 2015 is about much more than just fulfilling a campaign promise. simply put, it is about helping improve the lives of 250,000 more families in wisconsin. you see, adding a new job is about more than just a number. every time another job is created, and a new employee is hired, it means that another family has someone working in their household. for many, that means fewer worries about putting bread on the table or clothes on the backs of their kids -- or even making the mortgage payment on the house. i will work hard each and every day, so we can help people all across wisconsin have the chance to have a job, and work hard to support themselves and their families for generations to come. with bold vision and bright hope for the future, we are turning things around. we

of politics and, you know, washington is perhaps as nasty or maybe a nastier place than when you came in four years ago. why is that? and i thought his response to that question was one of the most interesting in the interview because he said that it was still his theory of politics, this grand theory of trying to find common ground and trying to find consensus. but he hasn't necessarily been able to do it because of two things. because of institutional roadblocks, he mentioned the filibuster in particular. and because the media environment that we live in in 2013. and from what i took away from that was, you know, a sense that because there isn't sort of this same vocabulary to talk about the issues that we face, it's harder for the extremes to necessarily come together. >> he also rejects the idea that this is on both houses. this will come off incredibly partisan that, no, they're the one who is are wrong. we have the right approach. >> in some sense it does. i mean, it is a much more sort of combative tone, i think the same thing we saw in the inaugural address. but i think that he really
